The Awakening: Making Youth Voices Count
‘‘The Awakening,’ is an on- going youth focused civic enlightenment program aimed at reducing the political apathy of young people in the South East. The main objective of the project is to consolidate Nigeria’s democracy and political governance through greater citizen’s awareness and engagement on governance issues, improved voter education and guidance, representation of women in the political space and service delivery. The project provides a forum for radio and social media discussions to positively provoke young people in the South East into action and it is the first of its kind in the region.
The programme comes on air every Friday by 4:30pm – 5:30pm on Radio Nigeria network station (which covers the whole 5 southeast states).
